How Common Are Speeding Accidents in Texas?

The National Safety Council reports speeding was a factor in 29% of all traffic fatalities, contributing to the death of 11,258 people in 2020.

The Texas Department of Transportation reports that 375 people were killed in traffic accidents involving speed in 2021. That included 179 speeding drivers, 60 passengers, and 25 pedestrians.

Why Is Speeding So Dangerous?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration highlights the following reasons why speeding is such a dangerous activity:

  • Speeding makes it difficult for drivers to maintain control of their vehicles.
  • When a driver is speeding, they will need additional time to stop the vehicle once they recognize a hazard ahead.
  • Airbags, seatbelts, and other protective equipment are not as effective at higher rates of speeds.

Speeding drivers can cause serious injuries to innocent motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians.

Common Speeding Accident Injuries in Austin, TX

Speeding accidents often result in serious injuries to motorists and passengers. The force of impact is greater, which can cause trauma to the body.

  • Traumatic brain injuries may occur that can negatively change the victim’s personality, ability to earn a living, and quality of life.
  • Spinal cord injuries are also common, which can drastically reduce a person’s mobility and other important bodily functions.
  • Fractures may require painful surgery and a long recovery period that keeps victims out of work for extended periods.

In addition to the possible physical injuries a person can suffer, car accidents are a leading cause of PTSD, depression, anxiety, and other mental injuries. While speeding accidents can happen in an instant, the effects can be lifelong.

What Are Potential Damages in an Austin Speeding Accident Case?

If you were hurt in a speeding accident in Austin, Texas, you may be able to seek compensation for the economic and non-economic damages you incurred, such as:

  • Medical expenses – You may have significant medical expenses stemming from emergency room treatment, hospitalization, surgery, laboratory and diagnostic tests, specialist visits, follow-up care, prescription medications, medical devices, and anticipated medical expenses for the future.
  • Lost income – You could be owed compensation for lost wages, lost employment benefits, and diminished earning potential.
  • Property damage – You may be able to have your vehicle and other personal property that was damaged in the accident repaired or replaced.
  • Non-economic losses – Most of the other types of damages you may be able to seek are economic in nature. However, Texas law recognizes that accident victims may suffer in ways that cannot always be quantified so easily. For example, you may be able to recover compensation for pain and suffering, emotional distress, mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, and loss of consortium.

An experienced Austin car accident lawyer can review the circumstances of your claim and discuss its potential value with you.
